If the Clintons weren't using the Clinton Foun- dation as a bank for foreign governments and business groups, what was it for? It certainly doesn't seem to have been about helping people other than those who are named Clinton. Investors Business Daily reported about the timing of donations and favorable policies when Hillary was secretary of state. The Foundation has already admitted to making a couple of book- keeping "mistakes' involving donations from abroad. J . However, Hillorats continue to insist there's nothing to see there. If that was the case, what were the foreign donations for? John Bolton Versus Ed Snowden Last week, the Boston Herald ran a commen- tary by John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, supporting the position that Congress should re-authorize programs run by the National Security Agency. Bolton believes the agency's data gathering respects the Fourth Amendment rights we all enjoy. Bolton opines, "The NSA programs do not involve listening to or reading conversations, but rather seek to detect communications networks." He went on to say, "Indeed, even the collection of the so-called metadata is surrounded by procedural protections to prevent spying on U S. citizens." Most of us are not that trusting of our own gov- ernment, especially since 9/1 I, and even less so (Continued on Page 14) L iiiiiiiiiii~iiii !i iiii!i!i !! il (Photo by Rosario Scabin, Ross Photography) hies.

(See additional photos on Pages 8 & 9) by Helen Keller For those who are fortu- nate enough to still ,be blessed by having your Mom with you, this is beautiful ... For those who aren't ... it is even more beautiful. It takes my breath! The young mother set her foot on the path of life. "Is this the long way?" she asked. And the guide said "Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning." But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her chil- dren, she fed them and bathed them, and taught them how to tie their shoes and ride a bike and reminded them to feed the dog, and do their homework and brush their teeth. The sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried, "Noth- ing will ever be lovelier than this." Then the nights came, and the storms, and the path was sometimes dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her arms, and the children said, "Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come." And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the chil- dren, "A little patience and we are there." So the chil- dren climbed, and as they climbed they learned to weather the storms. And with this, she gave them strength to face the world. Year after year, she showed them compassion, understanding, hope, but most of all...unconditional 19ve. And when they reached the top they said, "Mother, we would not have done it without you." The days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old and she became little and bent. But her chil- dren were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And the other, when she lay down at night, looked up at the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my children have learned so much and are now pass- ing these traits on to their children." And when the way became rough for her, they lifted her, and gave her their strength, just as she had given them hers. One day they came to a hill, and be- yond the hill, they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide.
